When Glenn and I first bought Agnew Door we were new in the door business. One of the first sources for doors and material we went to was Quality Wholesale. I walked into the office and the first person who greeted me was Darrel. I told him who I was and what I needed and of course he wanted to know how I was going to pay for things, when I told him a check he was happy to do business with us. Over the next fifteen years or so I spent a lot of time at the front desk discussing everything from sports (Iowa State especially) to politics and the crazy business we were both in. Darrell always greeted you with a smile and made you feel welcome and was a great asset to his business and will be missed by everyone who knew him. Our condolences go out to Alex and all the family in this time of loss.

Darrel was my Boss when I took the Credit Manager position at International Paper Company in OKC in the early 80's. Our paths crossed again when I worked for Yukon Door & Plywood until retiring in 2012. I respected Darrell as my Boss and as a friend. Thru the working years there were many times us old Long-Bell buddies would share a few beers together. Sorry for the family's loss, he will be missed..
